Darby's Synopsis
   1: But on the morrow of the sabbath, very early indeed in the morning, they came to the tomb, bringing the aromatic spices which they had prepared.
   2: And they found the stone rolled away from the sepulchre.
   3: And when they had entered they found not the body of the Lord Jesus.
   4: And it came to pass as they were in perplexity about it, that behold, two men suddenly stood by them in shining raiment.
   5: And as they were filled with fear and bowed their faces to the ground, they said to them, Why seek ye the living one among the dead?
   6: He is not here, but is risen: remember how he spoke to you, being yet in Galilee,
   7: saying, The Son of man must be delivered up into the hands of sinners, and be crucified, and rise the third day.
   8: And they remembered his words;
   9: and, returning from the sepulchre, related all these things to the eleven and to all the rest.
   10: Now it was Mary of Magdala, and Johanna, and Mary the [mother] of James, and the others with them, who told these things to the apostles.
   11: And their words appeared in their eyes as an idle tale, and they disbelieved them.
   12: But Peter, rising up, ran to the sepulchre, and stooping down he sees the linen clothes lying there alone, and went away home, wondering at what had happened.
   13: And behold, two of them were going on the same day to a village distant sixty stadia from Jerusalem, called Emmaus;
   14: and they conversed with one another about all these things which had taken place.
   15: And it came to pass as they conversed and reasoned, that Jesus himself drawing nigh, went with them;
   16: but their eyes were holden so as not to know him.
   17: And he said to them, What discourses are these which pass between you as ye walk, and are downcast?
   18: And one [of them], named Cleopas, answering said to him, Thou sojournest alone in Jerusalem, and dost not know what has taken place in it in these days?
   19: And he said to them, What things? And they said to him, The things concerning Jesus the Nazaraean, who was a prophet mighty in deed and word before God and all the people;
   20: and how the chief priests and our rulers delivered him up to [the] judgment of death and crucified him.
   21: But we had hoped that he was [the one] who is about to redeem Israel. But then, besides all these things, it is now, to-day, the third day since these things took place.
   22: And withal, certain women from amongst us astonished us, having been very early at the sepulchre,
   23: and, not having found his body, came, saying that they also had seen a vision of angels, who say that he is living.
   24: And some of those with us went to the sepulchre, and found it so, as the women also had said, but him they saw not.
   25: And he said to them, O senseless and slow of heart to believe in all that the prophets have spoken!
   26: Ought not the Christ to have suffered these things and to enter into his glory?
   27: And having begun from Moses and from all the prophets, he interpreted to them in all the scriptures the things concerning himself.
   28: And they drew near to the village where they were going, and he made as though he would go farther.
   29: And they constrained him, saying, Stay with us, for it is toward evening and the day is declining. And he entered in to stay with them.
   30: And it came to pass as he was at table with them, having taken the bread, he blessed, and having broken it, gave it to them.
   31: And their eyes were opened, and they recognised him. And he disappeared from them.
   32: And they said to one another, Was not our heart burning in us as he spoke to us on the way, [and] as he opened the scriptures to us?
   33: And rising up the same hour, they returned to Jerusalem. And they found the eleven, and those with them, gathered together,
   34: saying, The Lord is indeed risen and has appeared to Simon.
   35: And they related what [had happened] on the way, and how he was made known to them in the breaking of bread.
   36: And as they were saying these things, he himself stood in their midst, and says to them, Peace [be] unto you.
   37: But they, being confounded and being frightened, supposed they beheld a spirit.
   38: And he said to them, Why are ye troubled? and why are thoughts rising in your hearts?
   39: behold my hands and my feet, that it is I myself. Handle me and see, for a spirit has not flesh and bones as ye see me having.
   40: And having said this he shewed them his hands and his feet.
   41: But while they yet did not believe for joy, and were wondering, he said to them, Have ye anything here to eat?
   42: And they gave him part of a broiled fish and of a honeycomb;
   43: and he took it and ate before them.
   44: And he said to them, These [are] the words which I spoke to you while I was yet with you, that all that is written concerning me in the law of Moses and prophets and psalms must be fulfilled.
   45: Then he opened their understanding to understand the scriptures,
   46: and said to them, Thus it is written, and thus it behoved the Christ to suffer, and to rise from among the dead the third day;
   47: and that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name to all the nations beginning at Jerusalem.
   48: And ye are witnesses of these things.
   49: And behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you; but do ye remain in the city till ye be clothed with power from on high.
   50: And he led them out as far as Bethany, and having lifted up his hands, he blessed them.
   51: And it came to pass as he was blessing them, he was separated from them and was carried up into heaven.
   52: And they, having done him homage, returned to Jerusalem with great joy,
   53: and were continually in the temple praising and blessing God.
